Who are the current TW drama fansub groups?

Back in 2006-2009, I did a bunch of Mandarin -> English translations (also some for Japanese shows, from Chinese subtitles, since I only took 2 years of Japanese). I did a bunch of stuff with Sublimes and DoReMii but I see there's no activity on either group now. Then I got busy (and so did everyone...

Even if we gave you softsubs, you can't use it with whichever video. Different versions of the raws have different timings. And you can't just shift the subs, either, since they usually cut the (sometimes 6 or 7) ad breaks differently. If you're willing to do all that work, then you might as well tr...

You are allowed any private communication with any individual or group. It'd be silly to have restrictions on that (besides not harassing and spamming members).

EDIT: Ignore this post about fandom... since I took too long composing it. :unsure: Just on this "for the fans" business. Fan is short for fanatic . If your affection for the drama/actor/genre/whatever is average and healthy, then you're not a fanatic, and therefore not a fan. If you can t...

It's you again... Well, I'll answer as I wait for my latest purchases from iTunes to download onto my new Touch. First of all, it's not about money or looks or family or race or anything like that. It's about how a girl FEELS when she is with the guy. Does she feel cherished? Secure? Safe? Happy? Do...

It would be nice to have a forum/community where you HAVE to contribute something in order to gain membership. However, there are several drawbacks to this. First of all, it would be extremely unfriendly to new members, who may need help starting out with contributing. Secondly, some people just don...

Just because something is considered theft on an internet community does not mean that it is a crime pumnishable b y law. There's a difference. And yes, a cranky old man still has an opinion and yes it might still be worthwhile. And no, it isn't irrelevant. Suppose his opinion is that a tree branch...

Those are including the liver, intestines, pituitary, Thymus and bones etc.? I have a preference for the ones that have a spine :mrgreen: Hmm... yum. jk jk. Although, I do prefer a man WITH liver, intestines, and pituitary, etc... does that count? Besides, bones are totally sexy. (Think shoulder bl...

And I will take issue with not being part of a community. Let us say that you live in a nieghborhood where a few neighbors get together often and hang out, share stories, and the like. There are others who come, sit, laugh, and enjoy the company but do not talk much. They are not contributing, but ...

I stayed in the Smart Russell Hostel, which is really convenient area (near the British museum, and in the middle of zone 1, so you'd only need to buy the tube--aka subway--ticket for zone 1). It was really cheap because I booked early, but beware that it's messy and it's quite noisy at night if you...

Wow, so much discussion. I haven't read any of it, as ElwenAduialloth seems rather long-winded, but I'll put in my two cents. 1.) Fansubbers do not fansub for the leechers. We fansub for fun. (I do it to keep in practice with my Chinese.) Or at most, we sub for other fansubbers, people who contribut...

You are forgetting the many many times a burgler has sued and WON for getting hurt while stealing from someone because they got hurt in their house.... My team spends their own money to buy DVDs to produce fansubs with. We never once ask anyone who watches it to help us pay for that or buy them for...
